Is it possible to save the color changes made to an image texture (hue)?

Hey guys, have you noticed that when you change the hue of a texture it only changes for the sketchup model? You can’t save the edited version of that image.

Does anyone know any workaround to this? I’ve tried Photoshop but matching another texture’s colour is easier in SU.

Create a collection of your own and save the ones you want there.
Icon to the right of the drop down ‘Create collection’
Once you’ve done that you can open you collection in the secondary selection pane (Icon at the top right of the materials window) and drag from In model to Collection.

Yes. You can save the edited version. The best way would be to do what Box indicated and save the edited materials in your own collections but you edit the material and then overwrite the original. As an example, I did that to the white siding materials, here.

Sorry, could you be more specific? How do I overwrite it?

Edit the material In Model, then drag the thumbnail from the In Model pane to the appropriate library. You have to open the secondary pane to drag from the In Model to the other library.

It makes more sense to create your own collection of materials, though. When you upgrade to the next version of SketchUp, you can migrate the custom textures/materials. And if you ever have to reinstall SketchUp, the modified textures in the OEM folders will get overwritten and you’ll lose your work.

What version of SketchUp are you using? Please complete your profile with the correct information.

Ok, that saves the sketchup material, but when I right click on it and select “Export Texture Image” the jpg is saved with the original colors

Now you’re changing the goal post. The material, as edited in SketchUp, will show in future models with the same edits. If you want to make permanent changes to the material, you need to save it as a new material.

Ah, Finally! That’s what I wanted. Sorry if I wasn’t very clear at the begining. Thank you both for your time.
